Marcia Kay Lunt

Marcia Kay Lunt, age 77, of Austin, Minnesota, passed away, Wednesday, November 8, 2023, at her home in Austin. She was born July 17, 1946, in Ames, Iowa, to Donald and Reva (Kirby) Ritland. Marcia graduated from Austin High School and went on to attend Austin Community College. On August 29, 1970, she was united in marriage to Gary Lunt at the St. Olaf Lutheran Church Austin and together raised three children. In addition to her role as a homemaker, Marcia worked as a teacher’s aid for a few years. In her free time, she enjoyed traveling with her husband, watching Hallmark movies, reading, going for walks, and upcycling furniture and painting rooms. She also had a love for couponing and shopping, always on the lookout for a great deal. Family moments are what Marcia lived for; her face would light up in excitement whenever they came to see her, and she loved hosting family gatherings. Marcia also looked forward to time spent at the family cabin in Waterville, Minnesota. She had many beloved dogs that brought her great joy over the years. Marcia will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Donald and Reva Ritland; husband, Gary Lunt in 2019; mother-in-law, Bertha Everson; and brother, Greg Ritland.
